MAMMOTH SPRING -- Mammoth Spring Mayor Jean Pace informed city council members that the city has received FEMA funds in the amount of $26,000. The council met Oct. 6.
"This will allow us to start construction of the bridge on Third Street that was destroyed in the spring floods," she said.
She updated the council on the ballfield project. The project is being funded with a matching grant for $13,000 from Arkansas Rural Development and donations. The Rotary Club has donated $1,000 toward the project.
"This field will not only be for Little League, but any organized ball teams may use it. This includes schools, churches, Babe Ruth leagues and other teams," she said.
The council received one bid on the bush hog the city had for sale. The bid was for $100 and went to Beryl Dubois.
There are two streets in the city that are scheduled to be re-paved -- Fifth Street and Goldsmith. The mayor told the council both streets should be completed before cold weather.
Drainage was another topic at the council. Pace said ditches at Third Street need to be cleaned out and re-shaped.
The next Mammoth Spring City Council meeting will be the first Monday in November.
